I think we come across people everyday that say in one way or another how broke they are.
They say things like:
I can’t afford that
I have no money
That’s too expensive
That’s not in the budget
I can’t pay all the bills.
I even worked with a lady years ago that always said…
“Well, I can’t afford (whatever it is at the time), because my money is all tied up.”
This meaning it was in money making vehicles such as stocks, etc.
And my thought at the time was, “Oh yes, I see how broke you are.”
And yes there are people that truly do not have lots of money, but you still see them eating out, at the movies and basically doing and getting whatever they want.
From my years of observation of people there are basically two groups of people that whine about being broke.
The first group doesn’t have a lot of money, as I said, but still manage to get their wants. I seen proof of this for many years working in a family-owned deli. We sold things like pop, cigarettes, all kinds of snacks, beer, and liquor. I think most of us would have to say these are not necessities. So it always amazed me that people would be complaining of “being broke”
(at the checkout), but come in everyday for their stuff!
Now before someone gets bent thinking it’s none of my business what people buy…
and I agree it’s not.
I’m just making the point that this proves people get what they want. Do they really know how that looks whining about being broke and buying this stuff? So ok, get your stuff, but don’t whine!
The second group are the ones that watch closely what they spend, not because they don’t have it, but because they are afraid of losing what they do have. However, this group too manages to get what they want. Their priorities are just different.
But groups whine about being broke, but in different ways!
So, the point is…
If we go around whining and telling about how broke we are…
We will actually BE broke or FEEL broke and neither is good, because you will just keep getting more of the same!
So my advice is if you are broke, feel broke or both…
DON’T speak it into existence even more.
